The initial steps of this project, Phases I and II are today iconic examples of urban planning and architecture of the late 1950s and 1960s. The sustainability of this area is of great importance at the moment and this should be the main criterion for conservation proposals.The documents produced by the workshop participants, which will form an introduction for developing strategies for the conservation of the Modern Movement heritage in Turkey, will be presented and discussed during the conference in Ankara as well.Supporting documents:1.
